Yet another detailed review of the recent German controversy over the Nazi past. Evans emphasizes that the right-wing historians have had a considerable and deleterious effect on the political culture of the Federal Republic. A book, sober and restrained, that regrets the polemical tone of the German debate and essentially reaffirms the view of liberal historians regarding the causes and consequences of National Socialism.
